25-Seven VP Publishes Aural Architecture Book
Boston - Nov 20, 2006 - A book by 25-Seven Systems Vice President and Director of Engineering Dr. Barry Blesser, titled Spaces Speak, Are You Listening? has been published by MIT Press. Blesser, an AES Fellow and former AES President, co-authored the book with his wife, Dr. Linda-Ruth Salter.

The book examines the broad question of how listeners experience space in a wide variety of applications across a diverse range of cultures. Spaces Speak integrates insights from dozens of professions into a readable exploration of how auditory spatial awareness has been applied to real and virtual spaces.

Blesser is well known in the audio field, having invented the first commercial digital audio reverberation system, the EMT-250. He also helped start Lexicon in the 1970s, published numerous papers on many aspects of digital audio; and holds many audio and DSP-related patents.

Blesser was an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT from 1969 to 1978. As the director of engineering for 25-Seven Systems, Blesser's time compression algorithms are the core of the company's Audio Time Manager.
